Ho Chi Minh also has the largest remaining assortment of French architecture, most famously the Notre Dame cathedral, which lends the city’s sprawl a unique elegance. Wide boulevards turn to narrow streets and timeless alleys are a delight to explore along with its ancient pagodas and thriving street markets.
The War Remnants Museum in the city and the Cu Chi tunnels outside the city give an insightful but sobering account of Vietnam’s more recent history, and no visit to this country is complete without paying homage to this infamous chapter.
